Too cute to be true: 21 adorable hippo babies

If you think about the most dangerous animals on the planet, these creatures are bound to be in the top ten: humans, snakes, crocodiles and scorpions... not to mention lions, tigers and sharks.

But one animal that you might not think of is the hippopotamus. These seemingly calm and lethargic creatures are actually pretty moody, and you don't want to be around when they get irritated. Each year they kill an average of 100 people — that's twice as many as tigers and over six times as many as sharks!

This all seems quite hard to believe if you've ever seen a baby hippo. As far as cute animal babies go, hippos are right up there with the rest of them. Check out these pics of some of the most adorable baby hippos ever to be caught on camera...
